Eight African nations upgrade aviation message handling with Frequentis
- Advanced aviation message handling system (AMHS) from Frequentis has been put into operation in ASECNA member countries
- First major infrastructure program in Africa for Frequentis
- The region will benefit from harmonised, state-of-the-art airspace communication
In this project, ASECNA, the Agency for Aerial Navigation Safety in Africa and Madagascar, takes over the central procurement of the AMHS infrastructure for its member countries, including the delivery of eight complete and independent systems; Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Comoros, Côte d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and Guinea-Bissau now benefit from the most advanced upgrade of their existing legacy AFTN (aeronautical fixed telecom network) messaging service. The innovative, fully integrated messaging technology is now increasing their communication capability and fully supporting the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) basic and extended AMHS service profiles.
